About Us

The Flying Pig youth hostels in Amsterdam are world famous for the relaxed atmosphere in real Amsterdam style. The Pig bars are the best place in town to have a drink or an unforgettable party, meet other guests and staff or have a smoke together chilling on our pillow stage. All essentials are included in the price; breakfast, bed linen, wifi, lockers (bring your own padlock), maps, guides, free city tours and more. Our hostels all have a fully equipped kitchen for you to cook your own meal, share your meal with new friends and keep your trip on a budget.
